Welcome along to #TalkingTeams
Talking Teams is a weekly newsletter about all things people development and is for HR managers, L&D people and team leaders. If you are working with people then we are confident that this content will be of value to you.
In this issue we asked #ChatGPT what the biggest trends were in Learning & Development. Here is what it said ????
Here are five of the biggest trends in workplace learning and development:
William note - So I tend to agree. Rolling people into classroom-based learning, where everyone is spoon-fed the same information doesn't work anymore (did it ever!?!)
For me, it has never been easier to get closer to individual learners and their needs through technology. It's not even that expensive to do.
William note - Yeap on this one too. Why do you think Insta reels, Youtube shorts to TikToks are so popular?
I know when I want to learn how to do something I look for the shortest possible video on Youtube / the quickest way to get to the answer. Videos with chapters are AMAZING!
Why can't we do this with our learning content?
William note - Well, we use games and it works!
The tricky thing with games is that sometimes the fun takes over and we lose sight of why we are using a game in the first place. Sometimes language is important here so even subtly changing the terminology to 'simulation' can be helpful.
Think of what you want to get out of the experience and go from there.
William note - I'm still on the fence on this one.
At the moment VR has a considerable setup investment in terms of actual capital, time and the energy you will expend on a new idea.
I think it's far too important to be reduced to a gimmick as well. If you are planning to use make sure you are partnering with someone that really understands your needs.
William note - I don't think we are buying a Learning Management System (LMS) these days without the capability to delve into the data.
Using qualitative and quantitative data to help you make better decisions and build capital with whoever signs off on the interventions (FDs are you listening?) is a proper, grown-up way to go about your business.
